Police Say Shenandoah Woman Left Children Home Alone, Near Hypodermic Needles
Police say they’re going to charge a Shenandoah woman with child endangerment following an incident earlier this month.
According to information released by State Police in Frackville, the unnamed 26-year-old Shenandoah woman allegedly left her 2 children alone back on the morning of Oct. 3.
Someone nearby apparently called police when they suspected the children were left alone.
When police arrived at her home on W. Oak St. in Shenandoah, they found two children, ages 9 and 5, alone. A police investigation showed that the children were left alone in the home for about 7 hours prior to their arrival.
But it wasn’t just the fact that these young children were left home alone. Police also say the kids were in “deplorable conditions”. And there was “an abundance” of hypodermic needles in the house that the children could have easily accessed.
State Police say they quickly took custody of the children at this home. They were taken to Schuylkill County Children & Youth to be placed in foster care, police add.
There haven’t been any charges filed against the mother, as of this post going live.
